Bridging the Nature-Culture Divide II: Stewardship of Central Park's Woodlands
Conference Friday, October 5, 2012 (8am-5pm)
This conference is focused on New York's Central Park's woodlands, which appears feral but like the rest of the park is an historic designed landscape. Two panel discussions featuring officials from New York and San Francisco and private practitioners from around the country will examine design, management and stewardship examples and how their lessons can be applied to Central Park's woodlands. The conference is co-sponsored by The Cultural Landscape Foundation and the Central Park Conservancy, and follows up on last year's sold-out conference at the Jay Heritage Center in Rye, New York, about bridging the nature and culture divide.
6 Professional Development Hours will be available for landscape architects attending the conference.
The conference is a prelude to What’s Out There Weekend NYC, to be held Saturday and Sunday, October 6th and 7th.
